Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf course Set for Earliest Opening Ever April 24

Mother Nature is in the good books at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course as lower snow levels in the valley and warm spring temperatures have allowed for the earliest opening ever of this facility on Friday, April 24, 2015.

“We are thrilled with the condition of the course and to be able to open for the 2015 season this early is incredible,” says Nick Droulis, Director of Golf, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course. “A milder winter in the valley and the diligent care of our turf team has resulted in exceptional early season conditions for golfing. I’m looking out across the course and we are pretty much a month ahead out here, it looks like the end of May.”

The extra early opening also means the early reveal of a new and improved Fairmont Chateau Whistler Clubhouse. An extensive renovation in the pro shop complements the building’s existing high ceilings and extensive windows with new rich wood cabinetry and lit merchandising compartments. A refresh of the bathrooms completes the indoor enhancements while all new furnishings on the back patio welcome guests to relax with a cold drink after 18 holes of golf. The fully licensed Bear House halfway food and beverage facility also saw renovations done to the bathrooms. 

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course is known for its incredible vistas but another benefit in the spring, is the high potential for wildlife viewing from the course’s iconic fairways and greens. Spring tends to be an exceptional time to view some of Whistler’s resident black bears, often times with cubs, among other local wildlife.

To celebrate the early opening of the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course golfers can take advantage of the opening week special featuring a rate of $59 per person April 24 through to May 7, subject to availability. Taxes and a mandatory $20 cart fee are additional to the rate.

The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is also home to the Unlimited Golf package. All Fairmont guests can golf unlimited rounds of play on The Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Course on the same day of play following their initial paid round of golf. Also included is unlimited access to the Fairmont Chateau Whistler's Practice & Learning Facility.
